  6. It was Frank White (did he change his name) that played the twin fret gibson for Dave Berry. Check out the photo on this page. Dave Berry & the Cruisers.
  7. Used to play down there as kids. Try to see who could jump across the widest bit until somebody fell in the water (if you could call it that). It was the treated but still smellly water from the sewage treatment plant at Shirebrook. How we never got typhoid I'll never know.
  8. I think this is taken from my Grans window on Woodhouse Avenue. It is looking towards the hill which goes upto Woodhouse past the Recycling yard. The block of houses you can see were on the right hand side of the road heading towards woodhouse and were pulled down to make way for the new road system.

  19. Yes we have one. Very light and easy for my wife to use ;-). Cuts right to the edge and very maneuverable. After 40 years and trying every mower under the sun, we finally found the perfect mower. The only problem is the basket which has mesh on both sides which blow grass cuttings into my Koi pond. I just stuck wide vinyl tape onto one side and keep this side towards the pond.
  20. I have had a crop of forced rhubarb from my plant but now it is throwing up huge flower spikes. I have cut one off, am I doing the right thing or should it be allowed to flower?
  21. I have been told they are called Norton St.Pauls allotments if this helps.
